Footprint to Success Clubhouse in Pompano Beach, Florida filled a great need in the community when it was started a couple of years ago. It is a model based on Fountainhouse in NYC. I was thrilled when it was started here as funding for mental health services in Florida seems to be at the bottom of the 50 states. I recently visited Fountainhouse in NYC and I wish Footprint to Success had the financial support they have there- I was told the one in NYC was given a donation in the millions of dollars. There they have weekend and evening activities and it has 5 floors and a farm in NJ with alopaca (animals that look like llamas) and organic vegetables. Lets give Footprint more support and maybe it too can eventually offer more services and get more community support like the one in NYC which has been there since 1948.

Footprint to Success Is located in Pompano Beach near the Tri-rail and near bus route 34 so it's convenient for those who don't drive. It is based on Clubhouse International which is clientele run. The clients can go to the community garden if they want to and help with organic gardening. From there they use the vegetables and fruits to prepare meals at the clubhouse. There are culinary duties like shopping for food and gardening supplies, preparing the weekly menu, and business duties like financial data being entered into the computers, also media and social planning is done. It's an excellant pre-vocation place for those with serious and chronic mental illness. I love it!

My experience at the "foot print for success clubhouse" was a positive one. As a proffessional in the field of mental health, I was verry impressed in the the cossumers were involved in learning new skills. The club house shows how different a real clubhouse is from just a dropping center. Good job.

My personal experience as a member of Foot Print to Success Clubhouse has been a great one. I have been a part of the clubhouse since it first started, its given me lots of opportunities to increase my self esteem, build my confidence. Not only has it helped me with my self esteem, but I was able to go through the 6 to 9 months transitional employment. I am very thrilled to be apart of the Clubhouse.

Because I am a mental health consumer, I wasinspired me to become a part of the Foot Print to Success Clubhouse family . The Clubhouse fosters recovery through meaningful work experiences that build confidence and self-esteem. The Clubhouse is about self empowerment and charting your own course to success. Members have the opportunity to hone their consumer skills, take financial self-management courses, learn about website design and receive job coaching services, etc. Most of all members have a second chance to rebuild their lives.

Foot Print to Success is such a unique program. It goes way beyond being a job training program. The people they serve consider themselves a family. They all work together to achieve the same goal of going back to work and breaking the isolated lives they had.
I love that the members run the entire Clubhouse. You can see they take so much pride in the work they do.
